…because every family deserves a better relationship.

 

Most of our parenting is learned through our experiences as children. Sometimes, those experiences are not positive, and we learn behaviors that are not the best for our children. The purpose of our program; is to provide alternative approaches to parenting that may differ from what we learned as children. It is designed for parents to learn some positive parenting tools and add their parenting skills set.

Skillful Parenting

Skillful Parenting is a weekly course offering parents and guardians practical skills to develop better relationships with their children – at all ages and stages of development. Certifications received upon course completion.

Lessons include:

  • Self Esteem
  • Ages & Stages (Growth & Development)
  • Boundaries

See Skillful Parenting Curriculum for full list and details.

 

Over the years we have witnessed the devastating effects of divorce and parental separation has on families. During separation, divorce, custody battles and visitation these effects are magnified by pain, anger and lack of knowledge regarding how to support their children during the process. Often times parenting skills may be compromised, needs overlooked and parent’s personal issues are not focus on their children’s needs.

Co-Parenting

Co-Parenting is a weekly course offering comprehensive strategies to support the development of children – at all ages and stages – and to redefine relationships after separation or divorce to maintain focus on child’s needs. Certifications received upon course completion.

Lessons include:

  • Self Esteem
  • Ages & Stages (Growth & Development)
  • Boundaries
  • Communication
  • Self-Focused vs. Child Focus
